Hello Friends of Mark,
So grateful for all the love and support for the ReMARKable event in honor of our friend Mark Clayton Southers. The event is on Monday and we really hope to see you there.

It's not easy to come back from something so devastating, but he is a soldier, a warrior and his spirit will endure.
This Monday, 6:30PM at The August Wilson Center for African American Culture we are going to have fun, we're going to feel all the feels, we're going to come together as a community to say, we believe in what matters, and what matters are people. Healthy, happy, honorable people.
Help us get there, will you?
